Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Sabre as a

hold

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, good cash flow from operations and compelling growth in net income. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including generally higher debt management risk, poor profit margins and disappointing return on equity.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 18.0%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 17.4%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displayed by a decline in earnings per share.
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the IT Services industry. The net income increased by 179.0% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $46.40 million to $129.44 million.
  • SABRE CORP's earnings per share declined by 33.3% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. But, we feel it is poised for EPS growth in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, SABRE CORP increased its bottom line by earning $0.83 versus $0.40 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($1.44 versus $0.83).
  • The gross profit margin for SABRE CORP is currently lower than what is desirable, coming in at 33.55%. It has decreased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 17.06% trails that of the industry average.
  • The debt-to-equity ratio is very high at 6.96 and currently higher than the industry average, implying increased risk associated with the management of debt levels within the company. To add to this, SABR has a quick ratio of 0.70, this demonstrates the lack of ability of the company to cover short-term liquidity needs.
